Join Ilyus Evander, Providence transfem poet/activist, for an early-bird poetry workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the Astrology Slam. The one-hour workshop has limited space and begins at 5:30, with latecomers admitted no later than 6:00. This is a generative workshop and all are welcome.
This workshop is entitled The Body Speaks: the neck bone is connected to the shoulder bone, but what are they saying to each other? Our bodies talk to us every single day. Our bodies put as much out into the world as they are fed from the world. This workshop is designed to explore what our bodies are telling us and how we can better listen to them. The goal of this workshop is that each participant leave with a better understanding of their bodies, a new poem, and a simple prompt that can be done anytime to overcome writers’ block.
Cover charge is $5-$20 sliding scale, which includes admission to the evening show. We ask financially stable poets to consider contributing the higher end of this scale (or more) in order to defer costs for others and support this teaching artist’s generous donation of time to our space.
Due to the constraints of the venue, this workshop has limited space; room can be guaranteed to poets who identify as POC or queer. The best way to secure a spot in the workshop is to directly email the SlamMaster.
The venue is 18+ and a photo ID is required. For more information on the night’s open mic and Astrology Slam, click here. For more info about Ilyus, please see the info on her upcoming feature, scheduled for January 2, 2019.
